In this book, Alexander Tulloch effortlessly evokes life in Liverpool from 1945 to 1962, when he was growing up with his sister, parents and grandparents in a small terraced house in Aintree. Without overdosing on sentimentality he conjures up a world, to today's children as alien as Victorian England, in which all adults seemed to smoke for England, a pint of beer cost 7d, where frost painted patterns on the inside of windows every winter, where the 'lav' was a trek across the yard, and where you always went on holiday to Llandudno - an exciting 60 miles away. Accompanied by an atmospheric selection of photographs, Alexander Tulloch's gentle reminiscences will be enjoyed by anyone who grew up in this era, whether in Liverpool or elsewhere.
